Sunday Smatterings 7.10.16

Happy Sunday, folks!

Amy here. Are you having a good time settling into summer? In Nashville, that usually means coming to terms with never-ending sticky weather with thunderstorms every afternoon. But you know what? I'm making peace with it because . . .



I live for fresh tomatoes. By themselves with salt. On a freshly grilled hamburger. In pico de gallo. With cottage cheese. In all the things, I live for them. I love you, tomatoes.

Anyway . . .

Here's what happened on the Internets this week:

This one's for the book nerds: look at these 40 hidden artworks painted on the edges of books!



A valid question: "Why does every new restaurant look like a factory?" (I thought this was just a Nashville thing—not so much, it appears)


Have you ever wanted to own a cool book shop? Now's your chance.



Shop for stocking stuffers early: look at these socks for book nerds!


There is nothing I love more than animals of different species being friends—a good life metaphor, I think.


And closer to home:

Have you been missing JT? Never fear! I have the scoop on a way to get your thrillerchick fix: this Wine Vixen blog post, in which she dishes on an Italian red


If you didn't catch JT's July News, you can check it out here, along with this killer pickle recipe! (and if you never want to miss it again, you should sign up for her monthly email—word on the street is a pretty cool contest for email subscribers is coming soon...just sayin', folks)


That's it from me, fine people. Go get you some tomatoes (or whichever summer produce makes your heart flutter), stay cool, and I'll talk to you soon!

Cordially yours,
Assistant Amy
